WARSAW — Kosciusko Connect, a subsidiary of Kosciusko REMC, has broken ground on their high-speed, fiber-to-the-home Internet network.
Fiber construction is a multi-step process that begins with an infrastructure overhaul.
“During this phase of our buildout, our contracted crews are paving the way for fiber installation,” said KREMC President and CEO Kurt Carver. “You might see them digging to place cable, changing electric poles, or moving transformers to get our infrastructure ready for fiber.”
Crews will put out red utility flags a few days before they start work in a new location to alert residents that construction is coming their way. They will also hang an informational flyer on each house’s door when they work in residential areas. The door hangers make sure that residents know who is working in their neighborhood and give them a brief explanation of Kosciusko Connect.
“We know that construction projects like this one don’t always look pretty while crews are working,” said Carver. “But our contractors work hard to minimize the impact of this process. We have a lot of ground to cover, but it is worth the effort to bring reliable, high-speed Internet to our community. When you see trucks labeled with Kosciusko Connect and KREMC, it means good things are coming to your neighborhood.”
Currently, crews are working in the mid-eastern portion of Kosciusko County, which is Zone 1 of Kosciusko Connect’s five-zone buildout plan.
